Kentucky could not escape the second scrimmage of the preseason without an injury.
Mark Stoops revealed Saturday afternoon that Nik Scalzo suffered a knee injury during the action. Scalzo was seen being carted away from Kroger Field.
“I’m a little bit concerned about Nik Scalzo,” Stoops said. “We’ll see what the situation is with Nik. I feel for him right now.”
Scalzo injured the same knee last fall. He was cleared to play in June after recovering from an ACL tear. The timing is not ideal. Yesterday a documentary on his high school senior season, QB1:Beyond the Lights, premiered on Netflix.
